Description: The World famous Barasti Beach Bar has always been one of the city's most vibrant bars - and it's now better than ever following a huge renovation. Boasting a vast new outdoor seating area and Dubai's biggest and best live sport big screen, it's simply the best place to watch sport with a cool drink and bar snacks. Inside, live music is on throughout the week with plenty of seating for sundowners, food and a fantastic night out.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is "the place"! The local is very informal (slippers and shorts are ok), you can drink beers and any kind of alcoholic cocktails at reasonable price.
No queue, and friendly people, is very simple to make friends.
When I stay in Dubai, one night is always for Barasti!

“Poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Beautiful ambiance, but during the weekend overcrowded and we weren't satisfied with the food. It was oily and melons in the fruit salad were without taste.

“Good atmosphere with good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We booked a table in advance and got a well located table. The service was quick, there was a good selection of dishes and the food was good. The restaurant was very busy and had a good atmosphere. There was a live band playing which was very good. Down side was that there were huge TV screens with football on and there was no price list for drinks.

Very famous but not sure why. Was hard to get a table though not very busy. Food was Ok but nothing special. Maybe its better on other nights.

“great outdoor bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

most guest are western, gets too crowded during weekends, we went there Thursday night it was jampacked, they don't let single person in (so better ask someone to go with u even if u don't know them) or group of ladies (to avoid prostitutes inside), long lines outside, bartenders under pressure making drinks bcoz there are no lines in ordering at the bar so they entertain customers randomly whoever has a strong commanding voice gets notice first. DJ's playing club music and live bands depends on the theme, whether reggae or pop etc. outside seating is more preferred by many coz its more relaxing enjoying the cool April breeze, sometimes guest walk and dance on foot feeling the powdery sands, bouncer stops anyone from standing on top of the table or anyone carrying someone at their backs when I was there, but they don't mind if they see couples kissing. they should be more bartenders during the weekend coz 1 costumer have to wait for 10-20minutes for the drinks. but it was a good experience being with friendly stylish and sometimes unruly (drunk) people around.
